Still waiting for noise reduction.

That would probably use much more battery, but yes it would be very nice to filter out other noises.

When are they available! My 1st generation AirPods are no longer holding a charge for very long. I can get maybe an hour when listening to a Podcast or to Music, but maybe 30 minutes or less during a phone conversation.

I hope that the lid on the new cases folds back to a greater degree so that I can more easily extract the pods.

This has been my worry about them. Such a small battery. Can’t possibly last for years.

They charge pretty fast, but still. I have gotten to checking the battery level after a 20 minutes or so of a phone call and then putting one of the AirPods in the case.
